The bell is invited to sound.
Happily, she obliges.
The admonition, “Don’t forget to breathe!”
Brings a smile.

He had indeed forgotten
(Living in forgetfulness is easy),
But is a failing that demands redress,
With nothing but restoration in view.

And so the bell sounds once again,
And incense rises to the nostrils of a man
Upon whom awareness has dawned.
He won’t forget to breathe.
